Angry Birds Rio Airfield Chase Walkthrough Level 30 (10-15)

Quasi-Boss fight! Our strategy for Airfield Chase level 10-15 is to loft the Red bird onto the top of the plane, breaking both cages there. Next, fire the Blue bird below the ramp to break all three dangling cages. Launch the Yellow bird through the chain hanging from the tail and into the bay of the plane. The score in the video below is 56,700.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

Should be the most difficult one in this espoide
Need to hv 2 birds left to hv 3 stars

Though I used the first red one to hit those 3 cages below the plan and the blue one got the top 2 cages; finally the yellow went straight to hit the one at the tail and inside the plane. thanks.

As you need 3 unused birds to get 60k+, use the first 2 red & blue birds to knock-out all the cages except the bottom 2 big cages. Then let the plane to run it’s course (about 5 mins) and eventually the 2 cages break by themselves. Earn the extra 30k LOL

I understand the criticism, but when it’s the only score that someone enters, it actually is suspicious. Also, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t marc being questioned. The post says that the user in question had only entered 1 score. marc has every level entered. Users who post that many scores don’t have them removed willy-nilly. We usually contact them if there is something truly questionable.

It’s happened here before where someone comes in and posts ridiculous scores; they are flagged and moderators take care of removing them when appropriate.

I meant no offense to anyone, but I found the original entry (NOT Marc’s score) suspicious.

Here is an easier way to get 67K in a reasonable time (usually less than 5 min).
1. Send the red bird up so it falls in an arc and takes the purple bird cage and the yellow bird cage hanging down.
2. Blue birds should take the cage inside and both cages on top of the plane (this is a bit trickier but not very difficult either).
3. Wait until two lower cages fall by themselves ( takes about 3 minutes on average).
I have repeated this many times, with the highest score so far 67380.

*Copied from “Angry Birds Alumni” that has now closed their doors to the general public. Sorry that I did not post my strategy here from the start. Mind you, I used to think Angry Birds was a blast to play, no more..

10-15, 77020.. 1 shot strategy..

Allow the plane to approach the sling, say 13-15 seconds worth. The Red bird must take out the dangling chained Purple bird, the caged Passenger bird inside the fuselage *and* roll down the ramp snapping the green cord that’s attached to the caged Yellow bird all in one go. This is the “must do” shot for success or, try again.

After 10 minutes (approx.) the lower two bird cages under the ramp will “magically” break free and fall.

After 30-45 minutes (approx.) the upper right side bird cage will “magically” break free and fall leaving only the last caged Blue bird.

After 70-90 minutes (approx.) the plane will start pitching, pointing its’ nose erratically skyward. Finally, a cargo box will “magically” appear from the top of the now pitched plane’s fuselage that takes out the last caged Blue bird. Ouch (!) worth witnessing, its a “magical” AB moment to cherish.

Score plus 40,000 bonus points..

For an “easier” 2 shot strategy of approx. 66-67k..

1 shot – Red bird must take out the dangling chained purple bird and roll down the ramp snapping the green cord that’s attached to the yellow bird’s cage to free it.

2 shot – Blue bird spread to take out the caged bird inside the fuselage.

Then, same as the above, watch, wait 70-90 minutes (approx.) and giggle.

Score plus 30,000 bonus points..

Good luck!

If anybody is wondering, the zero-bird method still works. Twice I got scores in the low 70s with the plane crashing and all caged birds gone. For my current score of 76,930, the plane crashed with the chase mobile jammed up to the plane’s tail gate, but there was still a caged bird inside, which I set free with the first bird. As suggested above, I leave my iPad running before going to bed.

I decided to try the ‘no bird approach’ and started the level before I went to bed. When I checked it before sleeping, I had 15960 points with four cages and five birds left, which if cleared, would add another 70,000 points. When I woke up the level had cleared with a total of 71210 points. A mystery.

Although I haven’t seen this directly to back up my theory, but I think that the stray points that you can get on this level (e.g. the 1210 “stray” point that you have that would be in addition to the points for the remaining birds and the destroyed bird cages) result from boxes hitting the red bird that is sitting in the slignshot — I’m guessing the game registers any contact between that bird and a box as a scorable hit. Again, just a hunch….

Well I let mine run for 2 hours and it was up to 26500 with two birds left. The bottom yellow one and the birdcage inside the plane. If the plane had cooperated I would have ended up with 86500, however, the plane did the “nose up” and was flying crazy while the bottom of the plane was scrapping the bottom of the pavement, lol. Meanwhile the yellow bird banged around. Then it took a nose dive and finally leveled out but the plane was too far to the right so the falling boxes were not hitting the plane directly anymore so I threw in red bird and got the bottom yellow bird. Then I threw in the blues and split late and somehow one of them got the birdcage inside the plane. Two very well, lucky placed shots. So atleast I have above average and will run it again over night perhaps.

It took many goes to get it. I’d be interested to know if the 0-birder is still possible or if maybe the last update changed it. If you get time @bonneypattycat, could you please see if it does still do it. I can’t do it on the PC cos it keeps going to screensaver/pausing My RIO version/update is v1.7.0 – is yours the same version?
